can present a financial challenge for your family. Depending on your child’s
disability, however, he or she may qualify for benefits under the SSI
program. Our dedicated North Carolina disabled child Social Security disability

Determining SSI Eligibility for Disabled Children
If you are seeking SSI on behalf of a disabled child in North Carolina
or need help understanding how
Social Security disability works, our attorneys can offer you comprehensive support. Our lawyers
can also assist you in filing an appeal if your claim for SSI benefits
for your disabled child has been denied.
If you are seeking Supplemental Security Income for your disabled child,
he or she must meet the following requirements established by the Social
Security Administration (SSA):
Your child must have a physical or mental
condition, or a combination of conditions, which result in “marked and severe
functional limitations.” This means that the condition must seriously
limit your child’s activities.
- Your child’s condition must be disabling, or be expected to be disabling,
for at least 12 months, or must be expected to result in death.
- If your child is blind, he or she will need to meet the same requirements
for SSI as an adult who is blind.
Before receiving SSI, you must provide information to the SSA, including
medical records and documentation that your child’s disability affects
his or her daily activities. Our legal team is sympathetic to your situation,
and we are prepared to work diligently to help you obtain the benefits
you need to take care of your child. Our North Carolina SSD lawyers are
dedicated to fighting to help disabled clients receive their benefits,
whether through filing initial claims or
appealing denied claims.
